A sweet, spicy and tangy apple bourbon barbecue sauce. Great alongside those smoked meats and, well, any barbecue food for that matter.
Store bought sauces are typically loaded with sugar, calories, flavourings and preservatives. Besides being very unhealthy they have a tendency to overpower whatever you are serving it with. Medijool dates and maple syrup form the sweetener in this BBQ sauce.
One of the selling points of buying a Thermomix is the ability to make delicious home made mayonnaise. While we normally use Kewpie (Japanese) mayonnaise for use in small doses if we need a lot of it for potato salad or a dipping sauce there is really no better option than fresh home made.
What spices to use in a beef rub is an interesting debate in the smoking world. A lot of the traditionalists, like Aaron Franklin of Franklin’s Barbecue, only use salt and pepper. That’s it. Personally, I need to do a few more tests before making a call – not a bad problem to have!
